Police say that a Las Vegas police officer and a robbery suspect were both shot tonight during an incident at the Bellagio hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
According to Capt. Nichole Splinter, a person with a gun approached a casino cage in the poker area around 9:45 p.m. The alleged thief then fled out the north doors of the casino and attempted to carjack someone who had just pulled into the hotel-casino.
The suspect was unsuccessful and was confronted by four police officers. The suspect fired at the officers, hitting one of them in the chest area. Another officer returned fire, hitting the suspect.
